It's Monday, What Are You Reading?



It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Read Last Week:

I reviewed all three of these books together - they all shared a similar premise, although they all elicited a different response from me.


         

The Clover House by Henriette Lazardis Power: Ah, this book had promise. Parts of it were so good! But some of it was annoying.  

The Drowning House by Elizabeth Black: I didn't like this book very much at all. 

Girls in Trucks by Kathy Crouch: This one I actually liked! Sarah was a bit of a lost soul, yet I felt she had good intentions.  


Reading This Week:


        

Hell-Bent by Benjamin Lorr: I love yoga, and Jennifer at The Relentless Reader loved this book, and I like her blog, so it seemed logical that I read this book. 

The Night is Watching by Heather Graham: I received this from NetGalley - I am looking forward to a book that I am pretty sure has a happy ending, after the books I read last week. 

Watership Down by Richard Adams: This is my favorite book ever. I have read it so many times I could probably recite it.  If I lived in the world of Farenheit 451 this would be my book.  I always like to revisit this world in the spring, when the bunnies are running around the neighborhood and in my yard, although my dog Penny likes to chase them.

  1. Girls in Trucks looks cute :) I haven't read any of those titles but they look good. It stinks though when you build up yourself for a book and it falls flat.

    Happy reading this week :)

    1. I love the cover for Girls in Trucks. Apparently, according to the author, people have requested posters of the photo, and she gets lots of inquiries about the dress. It is really cute!

  2. I'm not familiar with the titles you read last week. I haven't read a Heather Graham in a while and I should. It has been years since I read Watership Down and that is tempting to re-read!
    Have great week.

  4. Watership Down is a favorite of mine too. I spotted the bunny in the yard yesterday. She knows I have the yard with all the tasty flowers!

  6. Competitive yoga, eh? That is totally new to me. And it seems a contradiction in terms. But maybe not?

    Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading?.

    1. I agree, I didn't think yoga was supposed to be competitive either! My instructor is always telling us not to compare ourselves to our classmates, that no one does the same pose the same way, and it is about where you are at that day. Lol. So the thought of it being competitive is confusing! I am looking forward to seeing what that is all about!

  7. I love the cover of Girls in Trucks. The cover of Hell-Bent looks very painful... Can you do that? If so, WOW!

    1. Hmmm, I don't think I can do that yet! Lol. It does look a little painful, I don't like the forward folds too much!

  8. Sometimes you just need a book with a happy ending. For me it was Debbie Macomber's Starting Now last week.

    Happy Reading!!

  12. I read Watership Down the summer I moved across the country alone for a 10 week internship. I'll never forget reading and loving that book. I love comfy rereads.

  13. Sorry you didn't have a great reading week last week. I hope this week's reads turn out to be great! I recognize the yoga book from Jennifer's blog. It sounds like an interesting book.

I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
